Nuggets of Wisdom


Many tendons run around the hand both on the palm side and also on the back of the hand.  These can be involved in inflammation and any inflammation of a tendon is described as a tendonitis.  These are often related to overuse syndromes through manual work, repetitive activity, sporting endeavours and also in the workplace due to repetitive keyboard use.  They can also occur against the backdrop of inflammation in the joints and systemic arthritis.

Mr Yanni - Bexley elbow consultant

“Mr Dimitri Yanni, was an angel sent to me in my time of pain, my first meeting with Mr Yanni left me feeling totally confident that he would look after me. In fact after my surgery I was struggling with uncontrollable pain and emailed Mr. Yanni, although it was a bank holiday, his birthday and he was out of the country, he phoned me and made immediate arrangements for me to get to a hospital with full explanation of what he required them to do. Mr. Yanni has gone over and beyond, couldn’t have wished for anyone better to have taken care of me. Thank you so much for caring, professionalism.”
